Aegean the Octopus Bag Pattern


Aegean is an adorable and practical bag with drawstring closure. Large enough to hold a small purse, a cell phone, keys, and a lipstick. You can be creative and give it funny expressions, or follow the pattern to make a weeping octopus. It is also a good idea for gift giving, especially to the little ones in your life.

Your patterns are gorgeous. You are 'way talented' as the teenagers around here would say.

I love the birdie bag and the jellyfish shrug. I haven't tried lace before, but this pattern inspires me to try.

I'll certainly bookmark your blog.
